to lance armstrong in the last the 4 hours. he cheated and lied about it for years and years and now is reportedly coming clean, somewhat? how much did he say in the interview he taped with oprah? oprah said that he was forthcoming but did not come clean in the manner in which she expected. what that means is not clear. oprah is too good to give it all away. >> i choose not to characterized. i would rather people make their own decisions whether he was contrite or not. i felt he was thoughtful. i thought that he was serious. i thought that he certainly had prepared himself for this moment. i would say that he met the moment. and at the end of it, two and a half -- literally two and a half hours, we both were pretty exhausted. and i would say i was satisfied. >> well, whatever ultimately made it to tape -- we won't know till later this week, long-time followers of armstrong say they are not ready to take anything he says at face value. reporters, teammates and even one-time fans all describe him as a born manipulator who will do whatever it takes for only one person, lance armstrong.

months ago and now is that he has had several months of no competition and for a guy like lance armstrong, that must be torture. he has been an athlete since he has just been a little kid, like a teenager. he was a professional triathlete and barely finished high school because of his triathlon career and he has had time to think about how he is lonely, how he doesn't have the adulation of fans at the finish line and nobody to beat right now and it's driving him nuts. >> legally, roger, there's a whole bunch of reasons why he should not have done this, right? >> yeah. you know, i hear what the other guests are saying, but as a lawyer, it goes against everything i know. i'm not the only one who knows the liability he's facing. he has wonderful lawyers who have given him advice over the years. he is looking at, in excess, if everything goes wrong, judgments in excess of perhaps $100 million. i am actually waiting to see how much he really confesses and what he confesses to. >> legally, who does he owe money to if he's -- depending on who decides to sue him or currently who is suing him? >>
